  1. Question for the Slammer III owners. I have a 4500 and have only fished it a few times for a couple hours total. The reel has never felt right while under load. I primarily throw 3/4-2oz. lures with it and when reeling under load I have a very rhythmic knock/vibration and stutter sound. You can also feel this sound. It is worse the faster you retrieve and if reeling super super slow you can’t really notice it at all. Reeling in a 2oz. buck tail though at a decent retrieve speed will be very very noticeable. The sound and feel I can best relate to would be driving on railroad track timber’s or running a stick or pipe down a fence row. It’s very duh duh duh duh duh sounding and feeling. Think drumroll type of cadence. Off the rod and under no load the reel feels very smooth and silent other than some slight play in the handle knob. Any thoughts? I’ve heard in the past people having issues with similar symptoms. Someone mentioned a possible bad bearing? My reel was purchased new a couple months ago but is an older stock with a 2017 manufactured date.
